In this article I focus on an early but as yet unknown comic strip rendition of the last phase of the Holocaust which was produced in 1944 under the title ‘Nazi Death Parade’ by August M. Froehlich in an American pamphlet expressing the indignation at the many atrocities committed in previous years by the Nazis in Europe, which at the time was still largely occupied. In a relatively short narrative, the creator tried to illustrate the industrial murder process in the extermination camps on the basis of eyewitness accounts. The comic was in accordance with the ambition of the editors of this publication to make the American public aware of the nature and extent of the criminal intentions and activities of the Nazis who, in their view, should not remain unpunished. Central to this contribution is the question of what view was given of the Holocaust in this comic strip and in what context this visual representation was expressed. In addition, the question arises to what extent we can say something about the way in which this comic representation relates to later comics about this genocide.
